Matt Matros, founder of PROTEIN BAR, opened the first restaurant in Chicago in May 2009 after shedding 60 pounds by following a high-protein diet. He created the restaurants as a place where healthy food providing the right balance of protein, good fat and healthy carbs can be universally accessible and affordable.
